100 Thoughts While Reading

100 Thoughts While Reading

100 Thoughts While Reading or 100TWR is created by yours truly. I honestly don’t know if someone have done this before but I got this idea from the awesome Epic Reads.

 

What is 100 Thoughts While Reading?

 

100 Thoughts While Reading is sort of an alternative to reviews here on Afire Pages. Like what its name says, I will be sharing my 100 thoughts (or more or less) while reading a certain book. If I didn’t write a review for the book that I’ve read (like always, because of the lazy unmotivated me), expect that from now on, there will be a 100 Thoughts While Reading post for it.

This is not a one-time only post. I will be doing this forever. Like as long as this blog is running.

 

Why did I create 100 Thought While Reading?

 

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen me do a thread for the book that I am currently reading and share my thoughts and favorite lines from it. I do this to express my feelings/thoughts towards a book and to let people know how is that book going for me (if I am enjoying it or not, if it’s good or not, etc).

Here are some of the threads I did:

 

I am that kind of a reader and a blogger who find it hard to write reviews sometimes for multiple reasons. Even if I want to write a review, sometimes I just can’t do it. So as you can notice, most of my reviews here on Afire Pages recently are for ARCs or finish copy that was sent to me by the publisher or author in exchange of an honest review (which I am so thankful for). When I know that I am required to write a review, I will do so. But when I’m not, like if I just randomly bought and picked up the book and read it, even if I want to write a review, I most of the time miserably fail to do it. And this 100 Thoughts While Reading is an answer for me. It is a need for me. Because I won’t have to worry about my writing, my grammar, if I am even making sense or anything. I will just fully express the thoughts I had while reading. Although I won’t be able to tell you my final thoughts and verdict about it, you may still get an idea based on the thoughts I had.

Lastly, I think this will be a great way to start a discussion about a book. We’ll also get to know how different each of our experience was while reading the same book. We might also get to know more each other. And probably meet other bookworms with the same taste in books.

 

What are the rules in 100 Thoughts While Reading?

 

  • Hide the spoilers!
  • Include these signs at the end of the title of each posts:

โ€œ+โ€ means 100+ thoughts

โ€œ-โ€œ means less than 100 thoughts

100 is just for its name sake! Of course, I donโ€™t know how many thoughts will I have while reading a book.

 

Do you want to join me?

 

Please feel free to do this on your blog if you want to!ย  If you want to do this as long as your blog’s running โ€“ just like me โ€“ or just for a couple of random reads, it’s okay! I would love to read the 100 (+ or -) thoughts you had while reading that book. Just please don’t forget to follow the rules, include the banner on your post and link this post to the post of yours so I can keep track. I will include you in the list (by blog and by books) of 100 Thoughts While Reading that will be posted here on Afire Pages so others can find you and the books.

  1. This is such a great idea! I think it’s a fun alternative to writing full length book reviews– not only can they take a long time, but sometimes a book is so complex/overwhelming that it can take a while to get our thoughts together. This is the perfect middle ground! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you, Holly! I just posted my first 100TWR๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜Š And definitely. It’s so easy to think about writing reviews but the actual writing can sometimes be so hard and time consuming ๐Ÿ˜‚ that’s why I really admire people who can write reviews so fast!

  2. This is such a nice idea and a great alternative whenever our minds can’t figure out how to do a review (something that my brain does so often). I might borrow this idea at some point because it’s very interesting and I really love to alternate my review styles. Great post! โค

  3. I like your concept.. I struggle to write reviews all the time esp for the books I buy and read.. That’s why I scheduled my reads starting this month so I don’t try to get out of it..

  4. Great article! I think your solution is quite awesome!! I strive to at least write a mini review on Goodreads nowadays because I tended to not leave any reviews on a lot of books as well and afterward, it really bugged me haha. I always write reviews on arc books that I receive and on self bought books as well but not as much as I would like. So that’s something I want to improve with this year as well.
